[Hie social, moral and political inpTeesion made by the " Father of His 

Country," not only upon his own, tout upon all autosequent times down to 
the present, has occasioned a degree of interest in him in the public mind 
unequalled by any other man that has lived in ancient or present days. 

As a result this popularity, and particularly from the fact that Wash- 
ington Ideals constitute the highest forms of Liberty, compreheinded in the 
aflbihty of an individual to use his brain and brawn to the best advantage 
for himself and for his Starte, has be«i recognized not only in numerous 
X)ortraitures from life, bnt also in tbe reproduction from these, by processee 
of engraving, of more likenesses of Washington than of any other man the 
world has ever seen: Over seven hundred copper plates are known, and to 
these several hundred variations are to be added, maldng the total list 
well over a thousand. 

The Inspiration for the present collection, now tendered as a perBianent 
loan to the Maryhmd Historical Society, came from the late Kichard D. 
Fisher, gentleman of the old school, hlMiojdiile, ILCterateur, and ardont 
mranber of the Society, at a. time when the writer was invalided for several 
months, and iwaa looking for some indoor occupation and amusement a 
little out of the ordinary run, and aocordingly fraught with new interests. 
Mr. Fisher started the collection himself by presenting me with several 
Washington Prints taken out of scrap-books belonging to his father, and 
by placing me in communication wi'th such dealers in engravings as he 
jcnew to be reliable. Out of this SMidest beginning the collection gradually 
arose; and many Summer vacations bad zest added to tiiem huKting priats 
in the shops of Boston, Salem, Newfburyport, Canaan, AnnajMlis, Philadel- 
phia and other towns. Philad^hia and its environs were found to be a

truly wonderful hunter's paradise; alas, now departed like most of the good 
things of this life, for as the years have passed fewer and fewer prints were 
to be found, and eventually they almost disappeared. 

However, it would seem that the writer entered the Washington print 
iield at a propitious znoment, as in comparatively a few years a consider- 
able number were brou^t together. Additions were made from the auction 
sales, and the Mittihell, Carson and Whelan collections all have representa- 
tives in the present one. This collection is particularly fortunate in 
including nearly all the Maryland imprints, also in containing the beautiful 
quarto-sheet hy Gimhrede (69), found in New Orleans in perfect condition; 
the Haines and the Hinton mezzotints colored an oils (120-202), the three 
Heath prints, known as the regular, the feke and the American (123 
et seq.), the Savage (122), called the Frog Wasiiingtan, from some fancied 
reseioiblflnce to the head of that ajsphiUous animal, and so on through a 
consideraible list. It is deflteient in examples of the C. W. and James Peale, 
also in the Edward Birch types, and it is to he hoped that owners of single 
examples of these engravers not now in the collection will he induced to add 
them, and gradually establish a Washington Room in the building of the 
Historical Society, not alone for prints, but also for furniture, silverware, 
Xwrcelains, and other memorials of Colonial Days. — Henkt J. Biiiaai:;.]

[The notes herewith presented have been in the possession of the collabor- 
s/tor since 1905, at which time it was deemed desirable to obtain some 
information as to Bichard Harrison,* of Anne Arundell County, who died 
in 1761, and was the subject of some interesting correspondence between 
Oecilius Calvert in London, and Governor Horatio Sharpe, of this Province. 
As there was at that time no suiEcient evidence of connection with the 
Harrison family furnished in the sketch, and no clue as to the identity of 
the writer, it was thought well to hold it for more definite authentication. 

O^rough the courtesy of Bobert Garrett, Esq., the Harrison papers lately 

Cecilius Calvert to Governor Sharpe. 
' " Mr. Harrison wh(nn IVe mentioned afore is represented by all here as 
a geirtteman of good character and has been serviceable in the late pro- 
prietor's affairs in elections and is desirous to show his Interest in regard 
to the present Lord and you in contributing all in his power to your ease 
and satisfaction in Government. So soon as it is in your power, I hope 
you will give him testimony of your friendship. It will be agreeable to 
my Lord and I shall esteem it an obligation. His wife is a relation to our

placed in his possession have made it possible to estalblish the necessary 
historical connection and to afford these unique glimpses of bye-gone days. 

Mrs. Kebecea Camplbell Key, the writer of these " notes," was a resident 
of Annapolis during her long and interesting life. Born in 1754, the 
daughter of John Campbell II, and Frances Hammond, her paternal grand- 
father, John Campbell I, is registered as a Scotsman and Planter, who 
arrived in the Province of Maryland after the uprising of the /15 and 
whose will is probated in 1735. Her father, John Camplbell II, appears 
as a vestryman of St. Anne's Parish, 1767-69, and occupied various posi- 
tions of trust in the days preceding the Bevolution. In his will, probated 
in 1777, he mentions his daughter Rebecca Key. 

She had married an Englishman, Robert Key, architect, who also appears 
in the annals of St. Anne's Parish as sharing the fortunes of Church and 
State, especially those of the church, in its most critical period of dilftpida- 
tion to its temporary abandonment in those tr,oublous times. 

The gentlemen of the Vestry, having leased from Mr. Douglas, the 
manager of the theatrical performances for which Annapolis was far-famed, 
the ground on which the Play House w»s built, Robert Key, with John 
Besaelius, is instructed " to take down, the organ, pack same in proper 
boxes as the Reverend Rector, Mr. Lendrum, and Vestry agree that in the 
ruined condition of the Church building, the Play House be fitted up tor a 
Place of divine Worship and that the clerk erect a pulpit therein." 

Mrs. Rebecca Key, however, became after the death of Mr. Key, an 
ardent convert to the Roman Catholic Faith, as shown by a note written 
to one of the Ministers of the day arraigning him for statements made from 
his pulpit as to the errors " of that C<hurch of which I have the happiness 
to be a member." The correspondence is quite intereeting as showing tiie 
controversial spirit of the times. 

iShe lived until the year 1840, and before her death gave her wedding

The size of Annapolis at my first recollection was apparently 
«s large m it is now. 



Among the early buildings stood some old and ruinous ones 
near where the present Episcopal parsonage ^ now stands occupy- 
ing the eorner as well as the middle of the lot. Among these some 
were large as if inhabited by people of some condition. All 
were built of wood, as were also a range opposite where the 
ball-room now stands; these were all said to have belonged to 
the Neutral French.^ They remained in a ruinous condition 
until considered a nuisance and were deatroyed soon after Gov. 
Edem came into the Province. 

City Hotel. DiUanies. — The present City Hotel was then 
standing; it was the property of a widow Dulany and was 
inherited by her son Lloyd Dulany, from whom it was confis- 
cated/ and it has since, I think, always been occupied as a 

Lloyd Dulany went to England where a quarrel which had 
begun in America between himself and a Parson Allen, ter- 
minated in a duel, in which he was killed. Hie left an inter- 
esting young widow whose case being presented to Queen Char- 
lotte, she settled upon her three hundred pounds sterling a year. 
She afterwards married the cousin of her husband Walter Ihi- 
lany whose estates in America were also confiscated. 

Oovemment House. — The original Government House, the 

' Vestry Proceedings of St. Anne's Parish, page 17. " All that lot of 
land . . . lying on the south and west of Hanover street and distinguished 
on plot by letter K, conveyed by Phillip Key and Theodosia, his wife 
(formerly widow of Reverend John Humphries), in 1759. The Rectory was 
in use until within a few yearB ago. 

'Nine Hundred and Three of these unfortunates arrived in Annapolis 
December 9th, 1755, and, said Daniel Dulany; "have almost eat us up." 
Governor Eden came in 1769 (June 5) and left the Province in June, 1776. 
The s.ojourn of the French seems not to have heen so permanent nor their 
quarters so substantial as in other places; some of their buildings having 
been in good preservation in Baltimore so late as 1824 and after. 

' The Dulany estates were confiscated, but were partially restored to the 
three daughters of Walter Dulany, Mary Fitzhugh, Margaret Montgomery, 
and Katherine Belt, who remained in the Province and received from the 
Government, 400 acres each in what was anciently known as the Valley of 
Jehosaphat, now known as Dulany's Valley. Their tract was known as 
Epping, the reproduction from the English Epping Forest. 


central part of the present one, was built by a Squire Jennings * 
and sold to the Proprietary Government; it must be more than 
a century old. My mother recollected when in her childhood it 
was occupied by S. Jennings. It was afterwards always used 
as a residence for the Governor and received the additional 
buildings in the time of Governor Eden. It was confiscated 
during the Eevolutionary War and made the residence of the 
Eepublican Governor from that period. 

Garrison. The Du Laneys. — The central building in the 
garrison was built by the same architect Mr. Duff, who came 
from England to commence a new Government House where 
St. John's College now stands and was his property until it was 
purchased by a Dulaney. It was occupied by a Dulany until 
the Eevolutionary War. The mother of W. and D. Dulany, an 
excellent lady, died in it. It was confiscated and the sons went 
to Europe. 

Walter Dulany and Grafton Dulany, sons of Walter, all went 
to Europe. Grafton had a commission in the British Army and 
died in Jamaica from being overheated in dancing. The young- 
est of three daughters of the same Walter married a parson 
Montgomery* who afterAvard absconded and went to England 
where he was well received, had a parish given him and was 
admired for his talents at preaching. He was called " The 
Beauty of Holiness " from his interesting appearance. The 
second daughter married a Fitzhugh and settled in Baltimore 
County and died there. The eldest married a Mr. Addison 
of Oxen Hill upon the Potomac, ancestor of the family who 
now live in Georgetown. (My great grandmother was wife 

' Edmund J ennings. 

"The Reverend John Montgomery, rector of feit. Anne's, married Margaret 
Dulany and departed to England early in the day. Their home in London 
was one of the centers of hospitality for the Maryland Loyalists, from 
which point he wrote to his mother-in-law, Mrs. Walter Dulany, " We have 
found an acquaintance here both male and female eminently respectalble 
and our situation is far from nncomfortahle." It is said that his unsuallj 
elegant deportment tempted Thackeray to use him as his study for the 
Reveread Mr. Honeyroan. 



to the Mr. Duif * who first occupied that building and she there 
breathed her last.) 

College. Parties. — ^Mr. DufF, architect, came from Scotland 
at the instance of Cecilius Calvert (but I am not sure). He 
brought with him a plan of building of the Provincial Govern- 
ment House, an Act of Assembly having granted the land 
whereon St. John's College now stands. Under his direction 
the walls of the present main building were erected, joists laid 
and scaffolding prepared ^<yr roofing it in. The original design 
was to have had wii^a — ^united by a colonnade of pillars on 
each side — -but in consequence of a difference betwen the two 
parties it was never executed. There were always two parties, 
the one called themselves the Country Party, the other was 
called the Court Party, and a large quantity of white marble 
was imported to finish off this building in handsome style. 
Small slabs for paving the Hall beautifully white and pure and 
black also — ^large fine slabs for the steps, etc. They were taken 
to the building — some were in the cellar and others piled on 
the outside. When the Country party, who were taxed to supply 
all these things in common with the other party, would not 
permit the building to proceed, declaring that the Province 
would be ruined, and that not another nail should be driven. 
The Court party argued that they had funds in England which 
might be drawn upon, but they would not permit them to be 
touched, and the building was left in that condition. The fine 
marbles were at the disposal of whoever chose to appropriate 
them and Avere consequently scattered about in various direc- 
tions, the ohimney pieces and hearths weie of very superior 
quality and nobody knew what ever became of them. During 
the encampment of the French on the Green in the Revolution- 
ary War, an officer of that Army expressed his suriM*ise at seeing 
a much finei? building than any most in the city, apparently in 

' Simon Duff was certainly in the colony before 1728, as at that date he 
was one of a Committee of the Parishioners to petition the Vestry to allow 
the improvement and extension of St. Anne's Church previously ordered 
by tiiem to proceed. He died according to the Harrison papnrs in 17S9. 


ruins ere it had been finished, and on being told the cause it is 
said, shrugged his shoulders and said : " the folly was not en- 
tirely monopolized by the Court party." After the Kevolution 
it was taken possession of and appropriated to literary purposes 
and now stands as St. John's CoZI^. 

Old Court House, now State House. — The old Court House * 
stood where the State House now stands. It was a very neat 
little brick building, but might have been enclosed in the walls 
of the present State Houro. An oblong square in form, the en- 
trance a hall opposite which, two or three steps from the floor, 
was the judges' seat, and on each side were apartments used as 
jury rooms. Over the judge's seat was a full length picture of 
Queen Anne presenting the Charter, which was presented at 
full length. On the upper floor were three apartments, the two 
largest were used for the Upper and Lower House of Assembly 
and the other was the apartment for the mace-bearer and the 
other officers depending thereon. A handsome cupola sur^ 
mounted the building, surrounded by a bannister and furnished 
with seats for those who chose to enjoy the prospect. This 
building was surrounded by a palisade within whidi the troops 
used to parade ; and at the time of the proclamation of the peace 
between the Colonies and the French after what was called the 
Old French War, the windows were filled with ladies to witness 
the rejoicings ; but on other occasions they were not seen there. 
It was pulled down not because ruinous but because a larger 
building was needed, being defective in Council Chamber and 
other oonvraiiraices. 

Parties. — Jennings, a young Englishman, having committed 
at home some wild prank which made it admissible for him to 
leave the country for a while, fixed in Annapolis, and being 
young and of fine talraits he associated with young men, students 
of the bar, among who was Samuel Chase, then very young. 
These young students stood perusing the charter which Queen 

' The forlorn ruin ^rein alluded to kag always b«m k»own as " Bladen'a 


« Built 1704-«6. Cf. mdgely'g AnnaU, p. 106. 



Anne held, in her hand in the Court House, found that it was 
violated in almost every particular by those in authority, and 
being of frolicsome character they had a very neat little walnut 
wood coffin in which they laid a copy of the violated charter. 
Upon it was written a very witty epitaph stating its death and 
burial. This was found at the foot of the full length portrait 
of Queen Anne and a great excitement and much mirth attended 
the general turnout of the citizens to see it. From this circum- 
stance arose a long quarrel betwen the citizens who thus found 
themselves imposed on by those in authority, which resulted in 
a triumph for the Country party who again had their rights 
conferred upon them by the Charter committed to their keeping. 
The Mayor, Aldermen and Common Council were once more 
in the gift of the people. 

My father was one of the first chosen Aldermen on this occa- 
sion. (Jennings made a fortune in Frederick and afterwards 
returned to Annapolis.) 

The two parties were always at variance and veiy busy in 
newspaper controversies. A man, just before the Revolution, 
seeking to recommend himself to the people aaeured them on 
one occasion that they might rest assured " that he would always 
be plump against the Government." He was much plagued 
about this saying. The picture of Queen Anne was destroyed 
during the war. 

Free School. — The Free School stood on the south side of the 
State House, a plain building containing school rooms and a 
habitation for the teacher and his family. The Fund was sup- 
plied by Great Britain, the number of charity scholars not 
known, but some were educated on the foundation among the 
last of which was William Pinckney, the orator. It supported 
two masters who had been sent from England and at the Revo- 
lution returned to their native country. 

Armiory. — The Armory stood at the north side at an equal 
distance from the Court House, a large hall, the walls covered 
with arms above the seats which were all around the room. A 
seat opposite the door for the Governor and his lady over which 


hung a full length portrait of Queen Anne. Nearly opposite 
to this picture hung another, a full lengtJi portrait of the Pro- 
prietor, Lord Baltimore, in his flowing robes.® Being used for a 
ballroom as well as an armory, a wooden gilt chandelier de- 
pended from the vaulted roof and the lights interspersed among 
the arms, gave it on ball nights a very splendid appearance. 
Three other apartments were appropriated one to the card par- 
ties, one to the supper, and the other to the armorer. The 
Armory was also used as a Council Chamber when the Assem- 
bly sat.i* 

Other Buildings. — There were also a stack of old buildings 
below Mr. Green's near where Mr. Henshaw has lately built, 
called Calvert's Old Buildings, and were in sufficiently good 
repair to be used as exhibition rooms by Mr. Peale within my 
recollection. The old Market House stood just below the 
present Gun House, it was about half the size of our present 
market house, but very commodious. The 'Church was enclosed 
by palisades and white railing and the yard was the grave-yard 
of Annapolis. 

Episcopal Church. — Apparently co-eval with these was the 
old Church on the site of the Episcopal Church. The only one 
in the place originally, it was in the form of a T, a part added 
to it made it in the form of a cross. It was neatly finished 
inside, the principal entrance to the east ; it was in a ruinous 
condition previous to the Revolution and the last minister often 
remonstrated with his congregation but did not prevail until 
the building of the Hallam Theatre ; he published a little poem 
in the Oazetbe which had a better effect than all his previous 

• In the correspondence of Governor Sharpe, Tolume 3, page 273, 23rd of 
February, 1766, Frederick Lord Baltimore writes; "I have embarked by 

this occasion a whole length portrait of myself, Putt it up with those other 
portraits of my ancestors you have in the Province and inform me of whom 
they are. I have also sent some arms well painted which you will place 
in the Council Chamber, or wherever you think fitt." 

" Cf. Kidgely, 107. It is apparent from the similarity of this and another 
paragraph, that Mr. Bidgely had access to these notes or referred to Mrs. 
Key when speaking " within the memory of persons now living." 



labor. The old church was torn down, but the Revolution break- 
ing out just then nothing further was attempted, and the The- 
atre was u«ed as a church, forum and whatever else convenience 

The Hallam Theatre stood above the bank, built of brick. 
(A note here in the copy says " uncertain.") It was afterward 
used for a school. The place was occupied as a reeidaace stand- 
ing on the brow of a hill, between the Court House and the 
Creek was the carriage house of Daniel Dulany. This building 
was similar to the original building of the City Hotel belonging 
to Lloyd Dulany and was called the " White House." On the 
hill overlooking the creek and nearly opposite the residence of 
P. Clayton stood a large building similarly constructed, the 
residence of the Tascar family. Both these buildings were 
burned to the ground, the latt<^^'r was purchased by Mr. Charles 
Wallace and modernized. It has been burnt within the last ten 
years. The house appropriated to the Cashier of the Farmers' 
Bank was, during my early recollection, used as a tavern. It 
was occupied by William Heynolds. The small buildlnej on 

— '■ Street belonging to the bank was once endeavored to 

be converted into a stocking manufactory but it did not succeed. 
My father took me to see the looms which were considered to be 
quite a curiosity at that time. 

The building occupied by Mis. Anne Harwood is one of the 
most ancient in the city. It was originally the printing oflBce 
of the Gazette. The same paper has been under the same title 
in the same family, edited and established by Jonas Green, a 
I^ew Englander, an ancestor of the present proprietor. 

The building now owned by Ghistavus Barber, commanding 
a fine view of Annapolis Harbor was always the property of the 
Protestant head of the Carroll family.^^ The house occupied 
by Charles Carroll is of more modem date and built for a 
family residence. An upper room of this house was used as a 
Catholic Chapel during his residence and afterward till this 
chapel was built. The priest had a room in his house — there 

" ChaTlee OarroU, Barriator. 


was once a resident priest in the family but not for a few years 
previous to Mr. Carroll's removal. The building next to the 

priests' present room was one among a room known as Mac- 
JSTamara's buildings; they were in possession of the Carroll 
family until the ground was given for the present Catholic 

The buildings occupied by Dr. Eidout were erected by John 
Eidout, Secretary to Gov. Sharpe. There was a building on 
the hill, still known as Powder House Hill, in which powder 
was kept. 

The house now occupied by Mr. R. Chase was built by J. 
Brice and used as his family residence. The building now occu- 
pied by Mrs. Lloyd was built and occupied by Gov. Ogle, but 
had many improvements by his son. 

Shipyardfi. — ^When Annapolis possessed commerce there was 
a merchant named Wolstenholm lived on the bank of the Severn 
below Mr. Selby. He had a long range of warehouses ; no ves- 
tige of these has remained for many years back. A wooden 
platform supported by wooden posts served this merchant in- 
stead of a wharf. Within the point of land projecting between 
the College and Graveyard was water deep ^ough to launch 
ships. The building yard was to right of the gi-avcyard and 
where the ships were launched is now shallow and almost dry. 
The owner of the shipyard was named William Roberts — he 
was a large importing merchant, reckoned to bring tiie best 
Madeira wines. His importations extended to London, Bristol, 
and other English and Irish ports. He built and occupied the 
house now of Col. Maynadier. This gentleman had a bla(femith 
shop to the north of his dwelling on which was a steeple in 
v.'hich hung the only bell in the city — below this stood his sail- 
makers' shop — he always had all things necessary to his business 
made here. The builders of the ships were Kirkwell and Black- 

" William Roberts presented his account in 1769, 1770 and 1775 for 
certain sums for the use of his bell by St. Anne's Church, ifiiich axscount 
was ai^roved tud ordered to ibe paid by the Sheriff. 



well. The first died early and was industrious and clever, as 
also the last. 

The only vessel whose name I recollect was called " The 
Lovely IsTancy " after Mrs. Koberts, an intimate acquaintance 
with whom I used to play in childhood. I remember the name 
from an incident connected with the launching. She was on 
the stocks and a large concourse of people assembled to see the 
launching. An old woman named Sarah McDaniel (white), a 
fortune-teller and witch, who was standing by said : " The 
' Lovely ITancy ' will not see water to-day." She moved finely 
for a while but stuck at last and Captain Slade with his sailors, 
fully under the impression that the vessel had been bewitched, 
determined to duck the old woman. They searched for her 
busily two or three days during which time she lay secreted in 
my father's kitchen, which stood adjacent to his dwelling on the 
lot opposite to Mrs. Walshe's residence. He removed from it 
to the lot adjoining Mrs. Ws. The house was used as a hospital 
during the Revolution and was burned down afterwards. The 
" Lovely Xancy " did finally leave stocks and made several pros- 
perous voyages.^^ The last recollected except one vessel was built 
by Mr. S. Chase and called the " Matilda." It was launched 
in the creek on the southwest side of Annapolis. The last was 
the " Lady Lee " fitted out by Gov. Lee; it was built elsewhere. 
My brother was the mate. She sailed to France. During the 
War the shores of the Bay were gtiarded by galleys. I do not

J. Davidson (now Waters), was at the head of the service. He 
died in the sra*vice and his daughter was a State orphan. Other 
merchants traded from Annapolis. A large block-maMng estab- 
lishment stood where Mr. Goodman now keeps store. 

West Street — ^was called Cowpen lane. The most consider- 
able building was a tavern kept by a widow McOloud — ^it was 
afterward used for a circulating library and kept by Mr. Eind 
(related to the Pinkney family). This was in 1762 or 63. I 
was taken there when a child by my sister ; it was the resort of 
the wits and the literary. It did not succeed and Mr. E. re- 
ceived an invitation to Williamsburg. The house fell into the 
possession of Mr. Quinn.^^ Afterward it was modified by Mr. 
Harris ; it is now the residence of Mr. J. Johnson. Tlie only 
other house was Mr. McParlin, also the tavern. The lot occu- 
pied by Lockerman had on it in the center a large house. The 
corner also had buildings upon it. 

I do not remember in what year the present Episcopal Church 
was built. Mr. Key was Hie architect and builder. 

Governor Eden. Incidents, Etc. — Governor Eden was in 
England after the commencement of the War. He was ques- 
tioned by the Parliament respecting the condition' of the S.tate 
and the probability of the people long continuing the conflict. 
His replies differed from those of Gov. Hutchinson of Massa- 
chusets. He told them he believed the people would not easily 
be subdued but that they would hold out to the last. He re- 
turned to this city and narrowly escaped being taken prisoner. 
The Council of Safety sent a deputation down to the Govern- 
ment House for that purpose. He was at the mom^t on board 

state, to see that she receives proper female education and accomplishments, 
OS the adopted child of the state." 

This same act made provision for the education and maintenance of 
Thomas Walley, son of Capt. Zedekiah Walley who was killed on one of 
the State barges; both of these children were known as "the orphans 
the state " or " children of the state." By Ch. 25, Acts, of 1785, Joseph. 
Handy, son of Capt. Joseph Handy of the barge Protector, was likewise 
provided for, but apparently was not formally adopted. No other like 
instances are known to the editor.

a vessel which lay at the bottom of his garden, and Mr. Key 
who was returning to the house to get something for him, seeing 
the deputation and suspecting their purpose, returned and gave 
them warning to be off. They immediately rowed from shore 
and made their escape — pursuit would have been in vain. The 
vessel in which he made his escape was either the "Annapolis," 
his brother's vessel or a government vessel, I know not which. 
BCis attachment to the Province was very great, his plans re- 
specting the permanent welfare at Annapolis were very liberal. 
He was a favorite of the people and a very fine person, tall and 
commanding. General Washington previous to the period of 
his escape always staid with him when in this city. They re- 
sembled in stature. I had seen them walk arm in arm. He 
changed before death, took the sacrament, and at his death he 
requested to be buried in S. R. Churchyard.^® After the embar- 
kation of the Governor, Mr. Key was banished 10 miles from the 
city (for his activity I presume) ; he was an Englishman and 
his predilections were for his country. On the Governor's 
return, Mr. Key, then residing in Baltimore, came down to see 
him. He had under Governor Eden's direction improved the 
ball-room very much. Governor E. regretted he could not pay 
him, but left him the chandeliers which he himself imported at 
£1200 sterhng to sell and remunerate himself. The Committee 
of Safety seized them and appropriated them. A rumour with- 
out foundation stated that arms were secreted in the Governor's 
house. In searching for them the chandeliers were found and 
taken. Their vigilance was very great. Mr. Key heard on one 
occasion of my illness and came to town to see me. He had not 
been in the house 15 minutes ere the Committee were there 
insisting that he should leave town. Tea being just ready, my 
mother said : " Why not let him take a cup of tea first ? " They 
consented to stand at the window until h« to(^ tea and fliey saw 
bim safely across lie riv@r. 

"South Biver All Hallovs Qmrch, one of the ol^st of which we have 
record before 1692, where Sir Robert I^eH, according to his cxpremed 
wishes, is said to have been buried. 


Indians. — The last Indians I recollect were a tribe on the 
Potomac. They exchanged their lands with the "Calvert family 
for Baltimore Cotmty lands, where game was more plentiful. As 
the white population increased, they retired to the Susquehanna. 
The Eastern Shore tribes used to visit Annapolis previous to 
the Rev&lution. They were civilized and Christianized and I 
recollect the venerable appearance of King Abraham and Queen 
Sarah as they sat upon the steps of the old State House. The 
pond to the east of the Ice House Hill was called Deep Pond. 
Mj father has found fine oysters there and since the Revolu- 
tionary War Captain Prendergast was therein drowned. He 
had married previous to the Revolutionary War secretly. On 
his return he tried to obtain an interview with his bride, but her 
father prevented it. A few days after, his body was fotind, it 
was supposed he had drowned hinwelf from vexation. Miss 
Mabury was the lady. She lived in the house next to Judge 
Brewer's ; her father cast her off when he discovered her mar- 
riage. She afterward married Mr. Onion of Harford Co. 

Fortifications. — There was no fortification that I know of. 
The batteries at Sun Point excepted. The two points, Horn 
and Greenbury's were covered with trees until duriiig the Revo- 
lution — they were cut down to erect fortifications. 

The present State House — was originally built much lower 
the steeple and covered with copper. During 
the equinoctial gale the copper was torn off and rolled up like a 
scroll. It then received its present form. On the site of Mrs. 
Bowie's stood the tavern of " The Three Blue Balls," kept by 
J ohn Ball — the property of Mr. West an opulent merchant, who 
emitted bills in his own name, called Stephen West's pioney. 
He resided at the Wood Yard and owned much property in this 
city. Mrs. B. Hyde purchased from him and erected from 
there down to G. Mackubin's.

one & Continued, to two a Clock, a fine soakeing Eain. I write 
at % an hour past 3 & we have another soft Eain & it looks as 
if the Afternoon or rather Evening would be rainy. I spoke to 
Beard & think you may give up th* debt. He said He was 
only a Security. The step you took, w*^ Brownly was proper 
If you want more flour let me know when you would have it 
M' Deards Came Here last Sunday morning & proposes to leave 
me on thursday. I shall tel H. Browne when I see him to goe 
to you. Calculate the Lit* from the Day Buchanan Payed the 
money. I shall return the PhampUets when I have perused 
them. I Cannot part with the Horses until you actually want 
th°i they are in good order & I will Exercise th™ in my Chair 
until you Call for them. Have you paid the 30/ to the French 
woman, if not pray pay it & let me know you have done so, I 
promised Her th* sum. The Eunings of my Ears is again 
stopped. I am in hopes it will at last go quite away. June 
24th another good rain yesterday in the Afternoon. We 

have done Planting Here & I suppose they have done so at all 



other Plantations. I do not like this days High wind it drys 
the ground too fast. My love and Blessing to you Molly & the

We have had a full 24 hours of a solid sober soaking Rain 
(I write at % an hour past 11 A: M) for little in Comparison 
of what fel run of the Ground. I suppose it has penetrated 
deep & th* the Corn, & tob° Planted, will not suffer for want of 
moisture for 3 weeks to Come tho the surface of our Land with 
three days sun may appear Parched. This Eain is very Season- 
able for every thing but wheat w^^ did not want it & some appre- 
hend it may Occasion the Rust, but as the weather is Cold I do 
not apprehend th* Consequence. The Rain I think wiU be Very 
Benificiall to our Gates, for tho they are low, I think they will 
Feather & fill well, and our Pasturage & Meadows must be 
much improved by it. It b^ins to Clear it Blowes fresh & I 
fear a Cold high wind. I have a letter from M"^ Brooke dated 
the 23d wherein He tells me He had sold my wheat at 7/4 to 
Moore who is to take it from my warehouse at His owne 
Expense, He also says He thinks I may depend upon good 
Payment. 300 & odd Bushells were delivered on the 24*1^, the 
Rest would have been delivered this day if fair. I expect the 
Cash next week & will send you £130 or £140 Pounds, as I 
think, I Can make a Shift with the Remainder untill I see Jo* 
Johnson. My love & Blessing to you all. May be Molly has 
detertnined on what day to Come up, if so, let me know it. I am

I have y''^ of the 22^ to the 27*^ ins* both dates inclusive. I 
have informed H. Browne th* I expect leather from M'^^ 
Harding. I inclose you Ireland's Acc* it is the only one I have, 
Eeturn it with a Copy of any xidditionall Aec* you may have 
agt Him, I took when at Annapolis A M" of the £4:10:3 p"^ 
Olapham. If I do not find a safe Conveyance for y' Letter 
to Line I will send a Messenger with it. Eedick is Removed 
to Bre County. In a letter of y" to me dated June 2^ 1769, 
you say Hanee Wandle Hovel has past His Bond to Jo: Eedick, 
for nigh the sum Eedick owes us, He is to take up Eedicks Bond. 
John Shryer is Hovel's Father in Law. Hovel last year prom- 
ised to be with me this Flal. I will write to Him by the 1®* 
opportunity. By the Eeceit it appears I did not Convey to 
Bp6wnly nor will I if He pays Bills. He Cannot expect it as 
they may meet with the fate, of Lees Bills, you may tell Him 
this. I have not yet got my goods or a letter from H : Brown, 
I have sent Ellick this day to B : Towne to know the Eeason 
of it. I hope our next years importation, will Consist of few 
Articles beside Plantation goods, if we do not restrain our 
Imaginary wants, no sum will satisfy them. The Wheat is sold 
to Moore's Son, Brooke thinks Him good Pay & have vnrote to 
C : B to know when I may Expect the Cash ; I have also wrote 
for Intelligence about the Mares, Considering Eidgelys Char- 
acter I would not swear th* they are not Concealed by Him. 
I believe I shall write as you advise about the Vignerons. I 
know not how it Happens th* flour is so bad our Bread is 
not the best But it is good and very Eatable. I have drove or 
used the Leaders twice, they goe very Gently, but neigh upon 
seeing Mares but are no way unruly. M"" Tho^ Buchanan 
Came Here last Sunday, He asked for tob° whether I intended 
to sell I told him I did, But th* I believed I should sell to West, 
if I did not. He should know it when I found a Price fixed. "We 
were both free & easy. By Him I wrote to you th* last Satur- 
day the People I think 70 Enterd iato an Association not Pay 



more than 4/ to our Parson & desiering you to Pay no more. 
Jo: Dorsey desiers to know y'^ Lowest Price for Thirty Tonus 
of Bar Iron, He wanted it on freight, I told Him y"^ Eesolution 
was to sel. 

July 1^* Mr Lewis Came Here yesterday, He will forward 
my letters about the Vignerons ans. Back th"* I have made the 
Alterations you advised: He brought the inclosed. This will 
be delivered you by M'^ Bear, by whome I desier you will send 
5 Dozen of sickles if you have th™ not in the store they must

be Come to hand. EUick is not yet Betumed from the Works.

Being in a Hurry when Bear Called I forgot to send you M"^ 
Ireland Acc* w'* I now Incliose. C* Brooke in a letter dated 

the 30*^ past says y'^ Wheat is not all delivered as yet to M'^ 
Moore, His boate is now at the Landing for the last Load. I 
Could not see More He being from Home, But His Clerk 
says I may Expect the Cash in a few days. I suppose I shall 
be able to send you what I Can spare next Saturday Sen-night 
by Mr Ashton. I likewise inclose my Additionall letter to M' 
WiUiams & my letter of advice to M' Buchanan. Get M'^ 
Deards to Enter the last in the letter Book & return both to me. 
The English mare & M"^ Irelands are found & I shall send for 
them next Tuesday. The goods H: Brovme bought are at the 
Landing & I shall send for them to morrow — July 3^ Bigges 
saya we want Eain allready, I do not think so, As a planter 



T think a Soaking Shower once a week would sute us. As a 
farmer Rain might bring a Mildew or a Rust, there is no 
appearance of either or any Blight as yet, the Wheat looks very 
well has a full & Eiather large ear & I think it will turn out 
a large Heavy & Plump grain, but in generall it is too thin: 
we shall not I think begin our wheat Harvest before the 13*^ 
N if so soon w''' we diall Quickly finish as Rigges proposes to 
Have 100 Reapers in the field. The ground worme hitherto 
has done little or no damage, the Plants in generall stand very 
well. Our Corn especially where the ground is good Comes on 
as well as can be Expected. The Gates except in the Meadows 
are lowe but have a strong Verdure & I think will turn out a 
pretty good Crop, & our Hay Harvest will be much better than 
I expected. The Potatoes Come on well & I hope will produce 
a good Crop. Pray send the Boy back early on Sunday morning 
as I shall be glad to Hear how you do before I set of for M'" 
Oroxall's from whence I shall return on Thursday. I suppose 
you will at farthest by M^ Ashton appoint a day for sending

July 10^ 1772 [196] 


I have y^® of the 3^ & 4*^ ins*. I have ordered Rigges to 
Reserve between 5 & 6 of my Worst tob** for the Parson w'^ in 

Case of necessity I will order to be distributed into as many 
toh° Houses as I have got & it shall be such as shall be deemed 
Marchantable as it shaU be of the Value of 10/ Cur p^ C* at 



least. I shall let you know How our sickles prove on tryall. 
We began to reap our Wheat this morning. You have given 
away Barr. You do not give y"" self the trouble to enquier 
How it sels. I am informed it goes of at £28 p"" Ton in Phila- 
delphia. Ycu do not want money, Even a want of th* would 
not Justify y"" selling so low. I offrd y*" Iron to Dorsey at 
£16:10:0 ster I have not had His answer. The Leaders goe 
downe by Clem & I shall dayly Expect Molly & the little ones 
& you if you Chuse to Ride y"" Trotter so far. Pray present 
my Compliments to Do"" Scot & thanks for the Turnip seed I 
have not Received any Money from Moore, C* Brooke knew 
I was from Home & I Hope th* is the Reason He did not send 
it, if I get it before Johny Returns, I will send what you want 
by Him. I returned yesterday from Croxall's, I found 
Him I think better than I have seen Him since His Disorder, 
but any surprise sets Him a shaking & trembling, as it did when 
He Received me. His nerves will never Recover their strength 
but He may probably live several years under His disorder; 
He is much obliged to yon for y'" kind Remembrance of Him 
& intended Visit, I am Certain will give Him great satisfac- 
tion, for He says we are His only Eriends in whome He can 
entirely Confide. He began His Harvest on Monday w'' will 
be a good one. But His Wheat as myne is too thin & that is 
the Case of all the Wheat between this & the Garrison, but the 
grain is fine & I think will prove very weighty: I have not 
Heared th* the Wheat is any where touched with the Rust, 
Mildew or a Blight. We had Here a refreshing shower last 
Tuesday evening, more at the EoUy & lower Quarters, it will 
help our Com & tob<* the 1^* Rigges tells me is very good at 
all the Quarters some of this old Field ground, th* is the poorest 
of it Excepted, which is but very indifferent. I have not Heared 
that the ground Worm has done much Damage I did not Ask 
Rigges, I only saw Him last night, He is now w*'* the Reapers 
at the Folly. I expect our Rye & Wheat Harvest will be over 
by Tuesday night every where; Dorseys Meadow, the Long 
Meadow next to Irelands & th* below the Orchard are moved 



the two 1^* in stack, the two last produce but a thin Crop but 
the Hay very good, so is the Hay bdow the Orchard. I have 
not seen Dorseys Meadow since it was mowed But Eigges says 
it yielded pretty well & the Hay very good ! IVost has mowed 
and stacked His grass meadows & stacked it a good Crop. 
Ohas : Eidgely wrote to me the 20*^^ Past to send for my Mares, 
I sent Accordingly last Monday to the works, C* Brooke as 
old Wed telb me said they had not got the mares but that they 
had Heared where they were. Eidgely I suppose to Answer 
His owne ends persuaded Hamilton to send His Horse to Him 
& Care not whether Hamilton or those who send Maros are 
served: As Clem must walk Home I Cannot expect any 
Clayed sugar by Mim, Molly may Perhaps Contrive to Bring 
up 25 or 30 lb with Her. My love & Blessing to you all.

8 o'clock post M: I have been at Qie Folly, they have got 
downe about 60 Acres of Wheat & most of it is shocked, there 
is 16 or 18*' which is left untill Tuesday being too green it is 
really fine Wheat there were about 80 Eeapers in the Field. 
We shall have a good Crop of Gates tho our upland Oates are 
Low & too thin our Meadow Oates are so stout & Bank th* I 
fear they will lodge should we have Heavy Eains. Our Potatoes 
in Generall look well, upon enquiery I Hear the Ground 
Worme has not done much damage : Frost has Eeplanted, Eigges 
not, thinking the seaaon not good enough.

A soaking Elain is much wanted Especially for the tob° & to

discontinued for fear of fiering our Corn: 38 Bush^ of Wheat 
are sowed in the Corn field next to the House & 35 Bush: of

tho not loud severe or nigh us. I believe these Rains have heen 
pretty Generall & it looks as if we should have more. It is 
fine Warme growing Weather. I have made a Walk between 
the Bath & the bottom of the Vineyard, Whenn Completed it 
will look well, it extends all along the Bottom of the Vineyard.

I gave Eagges orders to get y' Eammers & Iron wedges ready, 
as soon as possible. Eobert Davis is the only Surveyor within 
my reach. If you make a Continued slope from the Gate to 
the wash house, I apprehend the Quantity of Water in great 
Eains going th* way may prove very inconvenient, I think 
you Aould make as much of th* Eoade as you Can with a fall 
to the Street. We have not had the least frost Here but a very 
fine Eain all yesterday & it being very warm to day everything 
but Com will be greately benefitted by it, & the youngest Com 
may be helped. Tob* growes surprizingly, so does the Wheat 
& Eye. The Corn field before the House looks like a meadow 
the Wheat entierly Covering the ground, the Tops & Blades 
in til* field are gathered. I desiered you to lay by for me 6 
Bushels of Spelts, if you have forgot it, get th™ Eeady before 
the Eaces, th* they may Come up in my Waggon. As you say 
nothing about it, I fear you did not take the trouble to make 
my Compliment to M' Goldsborough, I wish you had. Old 
Christie & Do"" Lyon left me this morning, they stayed two 
nights. The Boy Antony who was so ill when you was Here 
dyed this morning, Howard opened Him & told me He was

I have y""^ of the 19*^1^ by Clem. The fall in y'' yard as you 
describe it, is as I would have it. I wish you had delivered 
my Message to M"^ Goldsborough for allJio He Could not C<nne 
the invitation must have been agreable to Him as He must 
have thought it (as it really was) Cordiall. You or M'' Deards 
forgot to send the last Maryland Gazet, Magazines, & English 
news papers w'* you say you send by Clem, However I have 
seen the Parody & the Eegulator, they in my Opinion Contain 
much abuse & very little or no reasoning. Consequently I 
think the Authors will gain no Credit by them but will make 
personall Enemies. I suppose the Register in Chancery if 
appointed to state the Acc*^ between Digges & me, was so by 
Petition or Motion from Digges, for I think the Chancellor 
would not have done it Suo Moto. If the Court is not over. 
Pray tell Johnson earnestly to press for interest on Worthing- 
tons debt, it is as I am informed the Practice of the Courts 



to give it on Merchants open Acc*^ from the end of the usuall 
Credit. Wheat is a ready money Commodity & of Course the 
Interest should be allowed from the Delivery of it. As Worth- 
ington has staved of Judgement as long as Possible, I hops 
J ohnson Has not taken a Judgement with a stay of Execu- 
tion as soon as the Court is over. Pray present my Compli- 
ments to Carroll & His Lady & tell th"^ I rejoice on their 
safe arival, if He has given you any news or Anecdotes Com- 
municate them in y^ next. I will send you some Gates by the 
Wagon or little Cart the 5^ of Octo''. But Eiggs says few if 
any more Can be sent, as the working Horses at all the Plan- 
tations & strangers Horses have been fed with the Common 
Gates, & the best Gates arc reserved for seed at all the Plan- 
tations. I am glad to Hear Marius grows a fine Horse & Hope 
He will Reimburse y' Annuall subscription to the Jockey Club. 
The Iron Wedges are done. I shall with this send as many of 
them as the Boy Can Conveniently Carry. The wood is got 
for y' Rammers as I suppose they are not immediately wanted 
the wood had better lay as long as may be to seascm, the Rings 
otherways will be apt to slip off. I am pretty Certain I shall 
sel my Wheat to EUicot, but then what will you do for 2*^^, the 
2*^^ of the Wheat ground for us is used Here, & Gur fine flour 
makea as good Bread as I wish for. Our Crops of all Sorts 
are promising, it now Rains & is warmer, if it Breaks up so 
we shall have a good Crop of tob^ may be between 80 & 100 
hgds. If Paeas Goldsborough's &c opinion should prevail, it 
will doubtless prove a Happy incident to Maryland, th* the 
Parsons Have been so Craving. You promised to send me 
Conrad Botts Ace*, Pray let me Have it by the Bearer.

all th* night w'^ we did not want; It did some small damage 
to the turfing of my Ditches at the Vineyard Meadow & washed

being Placed too high that defect I can rectify by sinking it 
about 3 feet & I intend to doe it ag* next Season. Our wheat 
& Rye every where looks Charmingly. I am apprehensive it 
will be too thick & Joint if the weather proves warme, I think 
it promises at present to Prove so. If you want turnips say 
so, I can send some very good ones. I shall send you nigh a

is thought by his family that the hardships incident upon the 
last days of the battle had probably undermined his strength. 
He was buried at Fromereville, France.

graduated in 1915. As a boy he became a member of the Evan- 
gelical Reformed Church of Frederick and he was much inter- 
ested in the work of the T. M. C. A., spending several summer 
vacations at a camp conducted by one of the Secretaries of that 
organization on Lake Geoi^^ N. Y. He was strong, well built, 
and excelled in athletic sports. Popular among his associates 
he was high-minded and honorable. In the autumn of 1915, he 
entered Lehigh TJniversity, expecting to take a four years' 
course in electro-metallurgy. He was initiated into the Sigma 
Phi Fraternity. At the end of his freshman year, trouble with 
his eyes caused him to intermit his studies and to take up work 
in one of the foundries in South Bethlehem, Pa. 

War with Germany was declared on April 6, 1917 and on 
April 12 he enlisted in the New York Naval Reserves as cox-- 
swain on a submarine chaser. He became very weary waiting 
to be placed on active duty and, at his request, he was trans- 
ferred to the Aviation Signal Corps Service at Fort Myer, Va., 
on Au^st 18, 1917. He was then sent to the United States 
School of Aeronautics at the Georgia Institute of Technology 
at Atlanta and received his diploma as flying cadet, from the 
Department, on October 19, 1917. On October 26, he was sent 



to France to be trained to fly but as no American aeroplanes 
were in France and no arrangements had been made with the 
French government to supply tiiem, he was held in camp, at 
Tours and St. Maxient, until the spring of 1918, when arrange- 
ments were made to train him and other flying cadets on th« 
French flying fields. He was commissioned First Lieutenant 
on May 18, 1918 and spent the summer and autumn at Cha- 
teauroux and Issoudun. He returned from a short leave spent 
on the Eiviera, and was instantly killed at Issoudun on October 
22, 1918, when his machine struck the ground on hie return 
from a prac^ce flif ht. 


Through the kindness of Professor Archibald Henderson, of 
the University of ITorth Carolina, we are able to identify 
another of the persons mentioned by Dr. Henry Barnard in 
his narrative of his travels in the South Atlantic States in 1833, 
which was recently printed in the Magaavm. On pages 336 
and 337 of Volume 13 in the number for December 1918, refer- 
ence is made to Mrs. General Street and her granddaughter, at 
Salisbury, N. C. The name Street is evidently mistakenly read 
for Stiele or Steel. Mrs. Steel was the widow of General John 
Steel, who was a member of Congress and Comptroller of the 
United States Treasury under "Washington, Adams and Jeffer- 
son, and died in 1815. Mrs. Steel died on August 19, 1843. 
Her granddaughter, bom December 30, 1819, was Mary Steel
